I’m on a holiday cheer high right now! I freaking love everything about this time of year! Friends, family, food, holiday decorations! (please note I did try to come up with another word for decoration that started with “f”)
Our little home looks like a cottage straight from a movie with all the lights and wreaths! I can’t wait to start baking holiday goodies so the whole place smells like Mrs. Clause’s kitchen! To add to my baking excitement I have new aprons to wear this year! (Yes Erin, you too will be wearing an apron)
Alright, one thing is certain…I need to get my priorities straight. I’ve sorta been just floating through life and I need to start actively living. I’ve been letting others determine my path and I need to start creating my own. Today I will get my priorities straight and start working to keep them that way. I know it takes effort and I’ve been being lazy.
Today I start making decisions.
Where the heck was Tom Robbins when I was serial dating myself through a mess of men?? I really could have used a few of these quotes to bring me back to reality while I was searching through musicians, bad boys, prepsters and jocks for my ‘one true love’. What matters in the end is that the person you’re with makes you better than you are alone and brings out the person you were made to be.
Thanks Mr. Robbins for reminding me of that.
I’m am so blessed with the wonderful friends I have in my life. I feel like I’ve finally surrounded myself with people who will help me grow, people who love me for who I am and people who are ready to go the long haul if I even need someone by my side. I know there will be many more acquaintances to come in and out of my life but I also know who will be a part of my life forever.
I think I can finally say, at the age of 24, I truly know who my friends are.
My bestie from college has moved in with Phil and I. Poor Phil was pretty nervous at first. I believe he imagined all night gab fests, crazy giggling and that I would be spending less time with him. Well he may be right about the gab fests and I don’t think he will be prepared for the impromptue dance parties. :)
I, however, am cherishing these last few months of girl time. It sorta feels like this is one big final hoorah before we both grow up, move apart and start more independant lives with our boyfriends. So bring on the dance parites, all night gab fests and random acts of craziness.
I may have to grow up but I’m not going quietly.
I don’t even know why I’m taking the time to write this when I need to be doing a million other things! Work is crazy, the affiliate challenge at the gym is crazy and for some reason I’m on the schedule at Grata waaaayyy to much these next few weeks. I need someone to remind me to breathe, do one thing at a time and move on. Fortunately my friend Melissa had the foresight to bring food, laughs and friendship over tonight….just what I needed. :)
